The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said this in a statement made available to the Newsmen in Enugu.

Amaraizu said that the video in circulation in some sections of the social media had been confirmed to be “false’’ and “an attempt to instil fear in the minds of the public’’.

“The attention of the Command has been drawn to the misleading and false video in circulation in some sections of the social media on an alleged bomb blast at Otigba Junction within Enugu metropolis.
